1Password 5 for Mac

Getting Started

Welcome to the AgileBits family!

By installing 1Password for Mac, you're taking the first step to increasing your online security and making your computing more convenient.

You've likely heard all the news about password breaches. You probably also know you're supposed to use different passwords for each site. And did we mention that each password is supposed to contain letters, numbers, digits, symbols, an allegory, a Shakespearean couplet, unicorn tears, and zero humor?

It's a daunting task if you need to remember—and type—them all yourself. 1Password generates, stores, and fills your passwords for you, making the secure thing to do even easier than reusing weak passwords and typing them yourself.

You aren't merely purchasing an app, though. You're part of our family here at AgileBits and have access to the best support staff in the business. If you have any trouble at any point, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us.

Here's an overview of what we're going to cover in this Getting Started section if you want to jump ahead. You can also simply click the link to the next topic to go through them in order. If we've learned anything from Maria Von Trapp, it's that the beginning is a very good place to start.

Now let's install 1Password and get things set up.
